Does this apply to sanitizer on the hands as well ?
I don't know.

i found it interesting to see the small print on my clorox wipes canister which i have lying around for months, that it kills human coronavirus!

my bad . It states explicitly that it kills cold and flu viruses. Hopefully COVID19 is included.
Lysol kills coronavirus, but this is Novel coronavirus. Coronavirus has been around forever. Acording to the CDC this is actually a variant of SARS. So who knows.
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

I'm curious. I noticed that my disinfectant wipes and sprays state that they kill 99.9% of bacteria. Do they also kill viruses? Or is all this hype for no reason... We've using them religiously but I'm wondering if it's worthless
ETA: my bad . It states explicitly that it kills cold and flu viruses. Hopefully COVID19 is included.

Routine cleaning with disinfectants is good enough

Can someone explain the bottled water craze to me?
Tap water stinks in many cities, Miami among them, it's warm out of the tap, gross...

So people stock up.

That might not make it cold but should filter it.  :)

I honestly don't get the toilet paper craze.

But with the amount of garbage being disposed out of my house approaching Pesach levels, I'm surprised people aren't stocking up on garbage bags.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!
